Building Handbrake: Do DSD Button Boxes have analog ports?


Oct 6, 2010
I am wondering if anyone knows if the DSD button boxes, such as my own "Boss: may have analog (whatever you would call them) on the board and if it would be possible to connect some analog device to make a handbrake.

I have Xpadder and Xpadder shows me that my DSD Boss button box may have up to 3 analog units on board. They are simply not connected to anything so I cannot test if they work or not.

Since I am looking to add a Manual Handbrake to my rig one of the possibilities would be to build the handbrake but then simplify things by making it part of the Button box.

The advantage, beside not having to buy the USB adapter, would be that I would not be adding yet another controller to my already pretty busy controller chain.

Is anyone familiar with this? I don't want to ask Derek because he is always so busy and I don't know how he would feel about me messing with his machine. He is a good guy but he gets irritated easily.
